Leah is passionate about helping others in making more sustainable changes, and does her best to model eco-friendly parenting practices as she raises her two young twins.

Her business is eco-friendly and sustainable from product design to delivery. Leah has designed her products and adapted them to produce less waste, products are sent out in recycled and compostable packaging, and all shipping is carbon offset – supporting rainforest regeneration.

Leah is delighted to be named as a finalist and is proud of her achievements, particularly surviving her first year of business during the COVID-19 pandemic as a first time business owner.

There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Leah explains, “I love being a role model for my kids, to have them with me as I run my business, pack orders and plan new products”.

It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Leah gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise ”Plan. Plan. Plan. 1 Year, 5 Year and beyond – where do you want to be and what’s going to take you there. Don’t be afraid to show your passion”.
